11:17 pm
amazon. and that's leading to sticker shock, if you re-order on the wrong day. for example: folgers coffee was $6 in june. then it jumped to $12 in august. and then back down to $7 in september. unfortunately, you can't lock in a fixed rate with amazons subscribe and save program. the new york times says amazon's prices vary according to supply and demand. so you're at the mercy of their there's no doubt subscribe and save is convenient. but if you're looking to save your money, the only real option is to skip the automatic refills, and buy the items manually, while the price is right. otherwise, watch your credit card statement for unexpected price hikes. for 13 action news, i'm beth fisher, helping you so you "don't waste your money."> your voice..
